Roberto Cavalli's Just Cavalli Resort 2013 - Indian inspiration

The collection was nothing less than an ode to vibrant India in a very Cavalli style. The bright and color rich collection for Roberto Cavalli’s Just Cavalli Resort 2013 was inspired by his recent visit to India. The designer beautifully infused the religious structures of Hindu temples in pale colours through prints and in psychedelic patterns. Colour blocking was reinterpreted in the form of print blocking in this collection. The tropical exotic floral and animal prints & patterns of the collection were translated into a signature Cavalli style. 

The collection had a strong 80’s Hip Hop & futuristic vibe with its fitted cap (embellished trucker hat), large gold hoops and wrist accessories. The key pieces of the collection were the jackets (biker chic), high waist shorts, blazers, white denim pants that were plated with rubber to give a cracked pattern, dresses with fringe & pleated skirts. Other key pieces were tailored tuxedo and a navy blue bomber jacket in croc embossed jacquard, a fine example of Cavalli embellishment.

I loved one jacket in particular, the one with contrast panel of blue, red and gold, creating a unique drama of colour. Another highlight, the green leopard print dress with its thigh high slit, had a very strong animal instinct personality to it and i wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the Red Carpet. 

Overall, the collection with its splash of bold colours had a very ‘welcome to resort holiday ‘feel. (Pic - Just Cavalli)
